Caption: Bell peppers with Phytophthora wilt. Farmer showing the roots of a bell pepper plant (Capsicum annum) infected by the water mould Phytophthora capsici. This fungus is known to infect many species of pepper, tomato, and other members of the solanaceae family. The spores spread rapidly in humid conditions. Early symptoms show small water-soaked areas on the underside of leaves. The leaves then begin to wilt and sometimes have a tan or white colour or a scalded appearance. In severe cases, the infection moves below the soil and causes the roots to decay, killing the plant. Photographed in Colorado, USA.
